Hey there,
I used Kaspersky VPN only for a short time, I deleted it because I suspected that the app consumed a lot of Energy.

My battery only empties by ~ 5% during the night, when the VPN was installed, I suddenly lost ~20% overnight! At the End of the Day I had to recharge… normally I recharge only after 2-3 Days.

I had the intelligent mode active, but WLAN & mobile data had been deactivated.

Everything has returned to normal since I uninstalled it!

Do others had the same experience?

My Device:
Samsung Galaxy S7 - Oreo 8
Kaspersky VPN Version

Hi @Tormas , 

Sometimes Android incorrectly calculates the consumption of energy. Please install Kaspersky VPN back, how will it go? 

If the issue persists, please submit a ticket to technical support via my.kaspersky.com, we will investigate in order to find the cause and the solution.
